2023 UCPath Improvement Projects

2023 UCPath Projects 


The system-wide UCPath team strives to constantly improve and advance UCPath functionality on a regular basis. As UC Santa Barbara's campus support team, we are here to guide you through any planned system updates, whether large or small. 

Check back often to learn the latest and to find out how any updates may impact your daily work.

   Salary Cost Transfer 

Impacted Module: General Ledger 

Expected Release Date: July 2023


The Salary Cost Transfer project will simplify SCT processing and streamline data entry by building an SCT solution that acts like a GL journal entry process.

The project will also complete SCTs based on complete labor ledger data, eliminate the need to recalculate GL summary and detail labor ledger transactions, and allow users to transfer costs based on complete detailed labor ledger transactions.

 Improve Final Pay 

Impacted Module: Payroll/Absence Management 

Expected Release Date: April 2023


The Final Pay project will enable the UCPath production team to receive complete final pay data from the locations and leverage the system data to process final pay accurately and in a timely manner.

The added functionality will also provide an off-boarding activity guide. Currently, manual entry and interpretation of data for final pay processing and dependence on third-party systems for time and attendance impact the accuracy and timeliness of final paychecks. 

   Improve Time Collection 

Impacted Module: Payroll/Absence Management 

Expected Release Date: April 2023


Improve Time Collection is part of a larger effort to utilize the Time & Labor module within UCPath to improve time collection by centrally collecting, managing, validating, and correcting time.

At this time, the project efforts are concentrated on UCPath testing time files with locations to validate new file-loading procedures. 

  Lived Name 

Impacted Module: All Modules

Expected Release Date: June 2023


The Lived Name project will enhance the user experience in UCPath by providing employees the option to select a personal name, known as their lived name. The project's goal is to display lived name on all UCPath pages where a legal name is not required.

  Upgrade

Impacted Module: All Modules

Expected Release Date: June 2023


UCPath Upgrade is required to keep the system on a supported platform with the most current patches, and newly released functionality, and ensures a compliant and secure platform. 

Continuous Quality Improvement


We are always striving to improve the UCPath experience here at UCSB. To do this, the UCPath Organizational Team conducts a bi-annual Stakeholder Satisfaction Survey twice each year. These surveys will be circulated through mass email.
